Report: Sharpshooter Anthony Morrow considering Clippers, Heat, Wizards, Raptors, Suns

If you want to stick in the NBA as a role player, be great at one thing.

Anthony Morrow does exactly that — he shot 45.1 percent from three last season. He’s not going to give you a lot of rebounding or defense or much of anything else, but the man can shoot the rock.

And a lot of teams could use a guy who can knock down threes, so he has options at this point in free agency, reports David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com.

To be clear, Aldridge meant teams would want to use money up to the mid-level exception amount, although likely only a portion of it (or an equivalent sum not from the MLE itself).

Those are some good teams that could use Morrow, but he likely waits to see both how the LeBron James saga plays out (Miami far more attractive if he’s there, obviously) and what teams will offer him.

In the end, it’s about the money and who offers the most. But right now Morrow is part of the bottleneck, waiting his turn.

    I’d love to see him here on Toronto. We’ve done a great job of filling our bench depth, really only lacking in a backup center. However, our team as a whole lacks a consistent 3 point threat outside of Lowry, and adding a sharpshooter would really help us close out games which was a major issue last season.

    Point gaurd like John Wall would be great for him…

    If we resign Ariza and get this guy as a sixth man that would be good. Wizards lacked scoring off the bench last season and It showed in the playoffs. If he can give us 11-15 points per game off the bench I like our chances to go further in the playoffs

      Morrow would be a good fit in DC

    Well, I think we can cross the heat off this list now
